The Cormorant In Winter

March 10, 2012

The Double-Crested Cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus) is the only cormorant that nests inland and in trees close to bodies of water. It is a noisy bird that is far more graceful in water than out. It was always amusing watching these birds fight over desirable branches in the large fir tree close to where I lived at Lake Leland. This picture was taken at dusk in early December 2008. Obviously, the birds found it too cold to overnight on snags in the lake, their preferred perches during the day.
